sage advice.

Artist Susan O’Malley’s ‘Community Advice‘ project features posters hung like advertisements around Palo Alto with the wise words of local residents. She interviewed nearly 100 people, asking them what advice they would give their 8-year-old self and their 80-year-old self. Using their words, she then designed ten letterpress posters. They include “Speak up for yourself, believe in yourself, be proud of yourself”, “Take more chances, make more friends”, and “Keep moving, keep playing, keep dreaming”.

thinking in the Dena'ina way.

The Outer Inlet dialect of the Dena'ina language of Alaska is one of the Dene (Athabascan, Na-Dene) languages. The Kenai dialect is one of five of these Dena'ina dialects. It is spoken by the Kahtnuht'ana or "People of the Kenai River" who today are referred to as Kenaitze. The Dena'ina language is one of the endangered indigenous languages of North America and is spoken by fewer than one hundred people.
